The 3-star family hotel Scala Greca takes its name from the main road that runs down through the town centre of Siracusa into the historical centre, where you'll find the famous Island of Ortigia connected to the mainland by a short footbridge. We're located in a tranquil side street nearby, giving families the perfect combination of value and distance from the heart of the action.
This spellbinding city is matched in its beauty only by its mind-boggling history. Older than Rome itself, this key Mediterranean port city on the eastern coast of Sicily has been a vantage point for traders and coveted by empires since the time of the ancient world. The great Greek mathematician Archimedes was slain here by a Roman soldier after a siege in 212 BC.
For those who'd like to combine a fantastic city break full of history, culture and the best food in the world with a few days of relaxation on one of Europe's most beautiful, white sandy beaches, the family accommodation Hotel Scala Greca provides a wonderful opportunity, thanks to our agreement with a private beach at the famous Fontane Bianche coastal region just 12km away and reachable in a jiffy with a hire car. Remember we also have on-site parking!
